Because it was a pre-TWIN PEAKS storyline! Roadhouse vs. Roadhouse matchbook vs. cigarettes not really about smoking vs. not really about smoking The surrealism of the doppelgänger, when DYNASTY broke the soap rule: "it doesn't have to be believable, as long as it's not impossible" - except that Dynasty's version was David Lynch-esque. It was supposed to be DYNASTY NOIR! Rita's hilarious metamorphose, Krystle watching her Twilight Zone-version on television, LB crashing his toy car into Rita - that is so THE OMEN! Long live Rita & Joel!
